The feedlot is located on a rolling clay based soil. The lagoons are constructed with a series of settling basins which drain into six large lagoons. Dry manure is scraped from the settling basins and pens. Then spread on area farm ground used by Weborg's or their neighbors. Manure is spread in order to use its nutrient value. Soil testing and manure scheduling are done to ensure the best utilization of the manure. Water from the lagoons is pumped through a central pivot system for irrigation purposes in the spring, summer, and fall months. The feedlot and lagoons are DEQ (Department of Environmental Quality) permitted.
